After a rise in breaches of regulation of private-hire Uber-style vehicles in Mijas over the summer, mayor Josele González met with representatives of the Local Police, the taxi service and municipal technicians last week to discuss ways to improve transport in the municipality as a whole.

During the meeting it was agreed that existing regulations had to be enforced more rigorously, especially the identification of unauthorised drivers, following the creation of several unofficial ranks.

It was also agreed that public transport in the area needed to be improved in general.
